Wii Gets Superly Smashing 500th Downloadable Game



The Nintendo Wii hits a milestone today, adding its 500th downloadable game to the WiiWare and Virtual Console rosters - and guess what it is?

If you answered "Super Smash Bros," then congratulations - give yourself a pat on the back - because you're completely correct! If you didn't answer "Super Smash Bros," then, uh... I can't really help you there. But yes, the grandpappy of one of the Wii's most popular titles is now available on the Virtual Console for the price of 1000 Wii Points - and hey, just in time for the series finale of There Will Be Brawl, too. All three Smash Bros games are now at last playable on a single console, in case you wanted to, you know, switch it up for ... whatever reason.

In case you're not into the whole Smashing of Brothers Superly, there's also the original arcade version of Tecmo's Ninja Gaiden, also known as the Team Ninja game before they discovered modern jiggle technology, and that'll only set you back a mere 1000 Wii Points. But surely you'd rather play one of the most beloved N64 titles of all time, right? Not saying that Ninja Gaiden's bad or anything, but you can't Donkey-Kong-Punch Link in the face in it.

As for WiiWare, new additions include Eco Shooter: Plant 530, a recycling-oriented shooter, party trivia game TV Show King 2, action platformer Pallurikio, and a Christmas helper app called Happy Holidays Christmas.

Yeah, no offense guys, but I'll stick with the Super Smash Bros for now.

Sweet! I never got to play the N64 Smash Bros. ( I rented it once but never bought it). I'll be buying that over the summer when my Wii is home and hooked up to the internet.

i should get wiiware sometime.
Well, this is Virtual Console, not WiiWare, but they're both sold in the same place.

OT: I guess they were waiting until an event like this to finally put this in the Wii Shop. However, I will not likely buy it, as I have access to an N64 copy of the game. Either way, I hope this gets more people to actually appreciate the "smash"-ing success that was Super Smash Bros.

Sweet, I think they should have released this game along with Eternal Darkness/Duck Hunt on the same day as Halo 3 though.

That would make some hilarious numbers.

I'll be sure not to alert my Tourneyfag friends.

They'll probably never switch on another platform for about six months.

I bought the wii primarily for the virtual console.

Oh, and homebrew.

Check out Uncharted Waters: New Horizons and Super Metroid next!

Hmm, Super Smash Bros has been out on the Virtual Console in Australia for 6 months now. Finally Nintendo America screwed up and gave the Australians something first!!

In the senior lounge in my school we have an N64 and all everyone plays is Super Smash Bros. Its like a culture now. I'm sure a lot of people will be happy to see this online.

I remember the commercial with the depressed Pit Bull talking about how his owner ignores him.
